CD-ROM/DVD Drive won't work

When we put a CD-R in it shows a little disc with an hour glass on the desktop. When we click on the drive it says, “please insert disc” as if there is not one in there already. It does not matter if it is a blank disc or one with something on it. I really need to get these to work so I can back up files and save files on a disc. Could someone please help me? The top drive is DVD RW. It will not recognize or play any type of disc. The bottom drive is DVD ROM. It will play an audio CD. It played an old Family Values Tour CD .It will play a commercially recorded CD. It played or opened up a disc I had for a free 1175 hours AOL disc. It will not recognize a blank/empty CD-R.

Hi and Welcome!

use CD/DVD burning software in order to write data onto a blank disc. Normally, Medion computers come with Nero preinstalled.
